Gordon Robertson, 25, grew up in Tayside and has been in his current role as a Newly Qualified Paramedic (NQP) for the past seven months in Aberdeen.
He said: “Although I may be biased, Scotland is great. The Grampian region especially has a lot to offer with awesome coastlines and scenery and it's only a stone's throw from the Cairngorms it’s a great place to live and work, especially if you like the outdoors.
“Aberdeen station despite being a large city station, we are a very close knit team. Despite being quite new to the area I felt very welcomed from day one. Colleagues are more than willing to help and we often arrange socials outside of work to keep in touch with each other.
“Go ahead and apply! Working for the ambulance service in any capacity is a rewarding career where you do genuinely make a difference to people's lives. You’ll work alongside caring and compassionate colleagues who are keen to teach and mentor new starts.”
Gordon said he has been in his current role for about seven months, adding: “SAS covers such a wide variety of areas so there is something for everyone whether you want to work rurally, urban or a mix of both! The service is expanding its horizons for clinicians with the exciting opportunity to progress into primary care, the 3RU, critical care, airwing, management and much, much more.”
“I enjoy the variety of incidents we attend and that every day is different. I love meeting a variety of patients who all have a story to tell. Prehospital, we are in a very privileged position where patients put a lot of trust in us to make the right treatment and management decisions.
"It's incredibly rewarding to see your actions benefit patients. Admittedly, not every day is exciting and some days are incredibly challenging but overall, it's a great job!"
